In the mythology of Etheril, Eteru is the creator of the continent. The goddess is not actively worshipped like the other gods, as she is "dead", said to have given her life so that Etheril could come into existence, and as such is simply honored instead. In the oldest versions of the myth, Etheril is the physical remains of the goddess, the ocean her blood and the rock her petrified body. All life on Etheril is said to trace back to Eteru, as well.
